The redesigned iPad Air with the M2 chip and new iPad Pro with next-level performance of the new M4 chip are now available.

The redesigned iPad Air and new iPad Pro, both powered by Apple silicon, are now available. Offered in two sizes for the first time, the new iPad Air with the M2 chip is more powerful and versatile than ever with phenomenal performance, a landscape front camera, and faster Wi-Fi. The groundbreaking new iPad Pro takes a huge leap forward with the new Ultra Retina XDR display and next-level performance of the new M4 chip — all in an incredibly thin and light design that makes it the thinnest Apple product ever. iPad Air and iPad Pro are also powerful devices for artificial intelligence with their combination of a faster CPU, advanced GPU, integrated Neural Engine, unified memory architecture, and intelligent features in iPadOS. Additionally, the versatility and capabilities of iPad Air and iPad Pro are enhanced with all-new accessories. Both devices support Apple Pencil Pro. The new Smart Folio for iPad Air and Smart Folio for iPad Pro are also available in colors that complement the finishes of their respective iPad models.

The new iPad Air and iPad Pro join Apple’s most powerful, versatile, and simple iPad lineup yet. The 11-inch iPad Air still starts at just $599, while the 13-inch iPad Air is a fantastic value at just $799 and available in new blue and purple finishes, along with starlight and space gray. The new 11-inch iPad Pro starts at $999, while the 13-inch model starts at $1,299, and both come in two gorgeous finishes: silver and space black.

Redesigned 11-inch and All-New 13-inch iPad Air

For students, content creators, small businesses, and more, iPad Air delivers exceptional performance, portability, and versatility, all at an affordable price. iPad Air is now offered in a redesigned 11-inch and all-new 13-inch model. It features a brilliant Liquid Retina display, even more performance with M2, and is a powerful device for AI. The 11-inch model provides incredible portability, and the 13-inch model offers users who prefer a larger display more room to work, learn, and play. The front-facing Ultra Wide 12MP camera with Center Stage is now located along the landscape edge of iPad Air, making it perfect for video calls. It also has Wi-Fi 6E and super-fast 5G in cellular models, so users can stay connected on the go. College students and educators can save on the new iPad Air with year-round eduction pricing starting at $549 for the 11-inch model, and $749 for the 13-inch model, exclusively available in stores and online.

Groundbreaking iPad Pro

The new thin and light iPad Pro comes in two sizes: an expansive 13-inch model and a super-portable 11-inch model. Both sizes feature the world’s most advanced display — a new breakthrough Ultra Retina XDR display with state-of-the-art tandem OLED technology — providing a remarkable visual experience. The new iPad Pro is made possible with the new M4 chip, the next generation of Apple silicon, which delivers a huge leap in performance and capabilities with an entirely new display engine to enable the precision, color, and brightness of the Ultra Retina XDR display. With a new CPU, a next-generation GPU that builds upon the GPU architecture debuted on M3, and the most powerful Neural Engine yet, the new iPad Pro is a powerhouse for AI.1 In fact, the Neural Engine in M4 is more powerful than any neural processing unit in any AI PC today. The 12MP back camera captures vibrant Smart HDR images and video with even better color, improved textures, and detail in low light. It also now offers a new adaptive True Tone flash that makes document scanning on the new iPad Pro better than ever.

Versatile New Accessories

The iPad Air and iPad Pro experiences are better than ever with all-new accessories. With advanced features like barrel roll, haptic feedback, and squeeze, Apple Pencil Pro allows users to bring their ideas to life in entirely new ways, and developers can also create their own custom interactions. Apple Pencil Pro also brings support for Find My for the first time to Apple Pencil, helping users locate Apple Pencil Pro if misplaced. It pairs, charges, and is stored on the side of the new iPad Air and iPad Pro through a new magnetic interface. iPad Air and iPad Pro also support Apple Pencil (USB-C), ideal for note taking, sketching, annotating, journaling, and more, at an incredible value.

With the new lineup, each iPad model now has two great Apple Pencil options. The new iPad Air and iPad Pro work with the most advanced Apple Pencil Pro and affordable Apple Pencil (USB-C). iPad mini supports Apple Pencil (2nd generation) and Apple Pencil (USB-C), and iPad (10th generation) works with Apple Pencil (1st generation) and Apple Pencil (USB-C).

The all-new thinner and lighter Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro includes a function row for quick access to convenient features like screen brightness, and a gorgeous aluminum palm rest and larger trackpad that’s even more responsive with haptic feedback — so the entire experience feels just like using MacBook.

Both the new Smart Folio for iPad Pro and the new Smart Folio for iPad Air attach magnetically and support multiple viewing angles for greater flexibility. Smart Folio for iPad Pro is available in black, white, and denim, and Smart Folio for iPad Air comes in charcoal gray, light violet, denim, and sage — complementing the finishes of the new iPad Pro and iPad Air respectively.
